The Swedish company Dometic Group bought Elkhart, Ind.-based Atwood Mobile Products LLC and is awaiting clearance to complete the purchase of Atwood’s Australian business, which is subject to regulator review.

RV, marine, truck and automotive product provider Dometic was cleared by U.S. antitrust authorities to purchase the company.

Dometic said Atwood has designed, engineered, and manufactured appliances and hardware for RVs, on- and off-road vehicles and the marine industry for 50 years.

Dometic’s global revenue on a rolling 12-month basis after the acquisition will be about $1.4 billion, with the number of employees increasing to more than 7,000, the company said.
